Since parting ways with the UFC in 2020, Paige VanZant has found herself a new home in Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
Unfortunately, things haven’t gone as planned for the photogenic bare-knuckle brawler. In two appearances with the promotion, ’12 Gauge’ is yet to find her way into the win column. Facing a potential win-or-go-home situation in her next squared circle appearance, Paige VanZant has secured another means of income that is becoming increasingly popular amongst female MMA stars.
Making the announcement on Twitter, PVZ revealed that she is now officially part of the internet content subscription service and that she was kicking it off with a free weekend full of content.
“Officially on ONLY FANS!!,” tweeted Paige VanZant. “And to kick it off I am making my site FREE this weekend ONLY!!! Come for exclusive content, training videos and SO MUCH MORE!!!! I’ll be online all day today ready to chat 🙂 See you there.”
Paige VanZant is Making Money Hand Over Fist Since Leaving the UFC
Upon entering the UFC, Paige VanZant scored three-straight wins and appeared to be the next big thing in women’s MMA. However, PVZ’s momentum was quickly halted in a 2015 meeting with former two-time UFC champion Rose Namajuna. ’12 Gauge’ would finish out her UFC tenure on a 2-4 run. Shortly after, Paige VanZant signed with BKFC earning a reported million dollars on a four-fight contract. In an interview with MMA Fighting, VanZant discussed her post-UFC success and the trend of other UFC fighters looking to greener pastures.
“Since I’ve left, I’ve seen multiple fighters leave the UFC — and it’s not a diss at the UFC necessarily, but I think it’s more an awakening in fighters knowing there’s money out there and we’re going to be compensated for what we’re doing.”
VanZant also revealed that her subscription-based services have made her more money than she has ever earned in both the UFC and BKFC.
“I will say when I signed with BKFC, the bare-knuckle boxing, I was making more money than I had made in my entire UFC career.
“Now, I’m making more money than my entire BKFC contract in like a month,” VanZant said. “It’s pretty crazy.”
